This print by Doris Salcedo depicts her 2006 installation created for the T1 Triennial of Contemporary Art in Turin. The pre existing dome shaped brick ceiling of Castello di Rivoli, was meticulously extended to cover the white walls of the room. Using bricks fabricated to mimic those used in the existing 18th Century ceiling, Salcedo created the impression that this brick ‘skin’ was suspended from the ceiling, evoking a sense of power descending on the viewer. By shrouding the walls of the room in this way, Salcedo makes reference to systems of power, and in particular those that are excluded from such.
